HISTORY 

Graduate education at North Carolina A. and T. State University was 
authorized by the North Carolina State Legislature in 1939. The authoriza- 
tion provided for training in agriculture, technology, applied science, and 
applied areas of study. An extension of the graduate program, approved by 
the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1957, provided for enlargement 
of the curriculum to include teacher education, as well as such other pro- 
grams of a professional or occupational nature as might be approved by the 
North Carolina State Board of Higher Education. 

On July 1, 1967, the legislature of North Carolina approved regional uni- 
versity status for the institution and renamed it North Carolina Agricultural 
and Technical State University. The graduate responsibilities of the institu- 
tion as a regional university are to prepare teachers, supervisors, and ad- 
ministrators for the master's degree, to offer master's degree programs in 
the liberal arts and sciences, and to conduct such other programs as are 
deemed necessary to meet the needs of its constituency and of the state. 



PURPOSE 

The Graduate School coordinates advanced course offerings of all depart- 
ments within the School of Agriculture, the School of Education, the School 
of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Engineering. Thus, the Graduate 
School offers advanced study for qualified individuals who wish to improve 
their competence for careers in professions related to agriculture, humanities, 
education, social studies, science, and technology. Such study of information 
and techniques is provided through curricula leading to the Master of Science 
degree and through institutes and workshops designed for those who are not 
candidates for a higher degree. Second, the Graduate School provides a founda- 
tion of knowledge and of techniques for those who wish to continue their 
education in doctoral programs at other institutions. Third, the Graduate 
School assumes the responsibility of encouraging scholarly research among 
students and faculty members. 

It is expected that, while studying at this university, graduate students (1) 
will acquire special competence in at least one field of knowledge; (2) will 
develop further their ability to think independently and constructively; (3) 
will develop and demonstrate the ability to collect, organize, evaluate, and 
report facts which will enable them to make a scholarly contribution to knowl- 
edge about their discipline; and (4) will make new applications and adptations 
of existing knowledge so as to contribute to their profession and to mankind. 



ORGANIZATION 

Graduate School Council 

The Graduate School Council is responsible for formulating all academic 
policies and regulations affecting graduate students, graduate courses, and 
graduate curricula. The council consists of the chairmen of the departments 
offering concentrations in graduate studies, the deans of the schools offering 
graduate instruction, the Director of the Summer School, the Dean of Acade- 
mic Affairs, the Director of Admissions, Registration and Records, and the 
Director of Teacher Education, five graduate students elected from the Grad- 
uate Club, and five faculty members selected from the graduate faculty. The 
Dean of the Graduate School serves as chairman of the council. 

ADVISORY COMMITTEES OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL 

Standing committees of the Graduate School are organized to advise the 
council on matters pertaining to present policies, to evaluate existing and 



proposed programs of study, and to process student petitions relating to aca- 
demic matters. These committees are 

Committee on Admissions and Retention 
Committee on Curriculum 
Committee on Publications 
Committee on Rules and Policy

sion to candidacy by the A. and T. State University Graduate School. Those 
teachers planning to teach in North Carolina should arrange to take this 
examination. The current minimum score is 550 on each section. 



ADMISSION AND OTHER INFORMATION 
Admission to Graduate Study 

All applicants for graduate study must have earned a bachelor's degree 
from a four-year college. Application forms must be submitted to the Graduate 
School Office with two transcripts of previous undergraduate and graduate 
studies. Processing of applications cannot be guaranteed unless they are re- 
ceived, with all supporting documents, in the Graduate Office at least fifteen 
days before a registration period. Applicants may be admitted to graduate 
studies unconditionally, provisionally, or as special students. Applicants are 
admitted without discrimination because of race, color, creed, or sex. 

UNCONDITIONAL ADMISSION 

To qualify for unconditional admission to graduate studies, an applicant 
must have earned an over-all average of 2.6 on a 4 point system (or 1.6 on a 
3 point system) in his undergraduate studies. In addition, a student seeking 
a degree in Agricultural Education, Elementary Education, Industrial Educa- 
tion, or Secondary Education must possess, or be qualified to possess, a Class 
A Teaching Certificate in the area in which he wishes to concentrate his 
graduate studies. A student seeking a degree with concentration in Adminis- 
tration or Guidance must possess, or be qualified to possess, a Class A Teach- 
ing Certificate. 

PROVISIONAL ADMISSION 

An applicant may be admitted to graduate studies on a provisional basis if 

(1) he earned his baccalaureate degree from a non-accredited institution or 

(2) the record of his undergraduate preparation reveals deficiencies that can 
be removed near the beginning of his graduate study. A student admitted 
provisionally may be required to pass examinations to demonstrate his 
knowledge in specified areas, to take specified undergraduate courses to 
improve his background, or to demonstrate his competence for graduate work 
by earning no grades below "B" in his first nine hours of graduate work at 
this institution. 

SPECIAL STUDENTS 

Students not seeking a graduate degree at A. and T. may be admitted in order 
to take courses for self-improvement or for renewal of teaching certificate if 
said students meet standard Graduate School entrance requirements. If a 
student subsequently wishes to pursue a degree program, he must request an 
evaluation of his record. The Graduate School reserves the right to refuse to 
accept towards a degree program credits which the candidate earned while 
enrolled as a special student; in no circumstances may the student apply 
towards a degree program more than twelve semester hours earned as a 
special student. 

Housing 

The university maintains seven residence halls for women and three for 
men. A request for dormitory housing accommodation should be directed to 
the Dean of Students at least sixty days prior to the expected date of registra- 
tion. 

Food Services 

The university provides food service for students at minimum cost. Two 
cafeterias and a snack bar are operated at convenient locations on the cam- 
pus. Students who live in the residence halls are required to eat in the 
cafeterias.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

GRADUATE ASSISTANTS 

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available to qualified 
individuals. The student is assigned to assist a professor or a department 
twenty hours per week for the duration of the assistantship. Some graduate 
assistants are assigned to teach freshman classes. Normally, a graduate 
assistant will be assigned to teach only one class per semester, but he may 
be assigned to teach a maximum of two. The assistantship offers a stipend 
in addition to the funds required for tuition, fees, books, and board and lodg- 
ing expenses for residence on campus. Application for an assistantship must 
be made to the Dean of the Graduate School at least five months before fall 
registration. Only full-time graduate students are eligible. 

OTHER ASSISTANCE 

Funds, such as the National Defense Student Loan Fund, are available in 
limited quantity for students. Requests for information concerning these 
funds should be directed to the Graduate School. 



EXPENSES 

The fees charged to a full-time graduate student carrying 12 or more 
semester hours of work are the same as those charged to full-time under- 
graduate students. For one academic year, a state resident should expect to 
pay $524.50, which will cover tuition and course fees; this sum does not in- 
clude room and board charges. Tuition and course fees for an out-of-state 
student carrying a full schedule will total $1,223.50 for the academic year. 
Current room and board rates are $382.00 per semester. 

For the summer, each in-state student pays $8.40 per credit hour for tui- 
tion: each out-of-state student pays $25.00 per credit hour for tuition. Other 
fees amount to $3.80 per semester hour. Room and board are $20.50 per week. 

As student fees are subject to change without prior notice, it is suggested 
that the Cashier's Office be consulted for complete information concerning 
charges for full and part-time students. 

SPECIAL FEES 

Fee for processing application (required only for first application 

for graduate studies) $ 5.00 

Late registration 5.00 

Graduation fees (Diploma and rental of academic regalia 25.00 

Transcript (after first one) 1.00 

Master's thesis binding fee 20.00 

Auditing 

To audit a course, a student must obtain permission from the Dean of the 
Graduate School and must submit the necessary forms during the registration 
period. A part-time student must pay all fees, including tuition, that would 
be charged to a student taking the course for credit. A full-time student is 
not required to pay any additional fees for auditing. A change from "credit" 
registration to "audit" will not be permitted after the close of the deadline 
date for withdrawing from a course. An auditor is not required to participate 
in class discussions, prepare assignments, or take examinations. 

SCHEDULE OF DEADLINES 

The Graduate School provides schedules of specific dates for completing 
various requirements for a degree program. These notices are not sent to 

11 



individuals automatically, but may be found in the calendar of the Graduate 
School, available upon request. 

REQUESTS FOR GRADE REPORTS AND TRANSCRIPTS 

The Office of Registration and Records is the official record-keeping office 
at the college. Requests for official statements regarding courses completed, 
grade reports, or transcripts should be directed to that office. 



12 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 

Advising 

Until he is assigned to an advisor after he has been accepted as a candidate 
in a degree program, a graduate student is advised by a member of the grad- 
uate faculty appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student, 
however, should consult and follow the curriculum guide prepared for his 
area of concentration. Separate curriculum guide sheets are available in the 
office of the department offering the concentration. They may be secured also 
from the Graduate School Office. 

"Special" students are advised by members of the graduate faculty ap- 
pointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. 

Class Loads 

FULL-TIME STUDENTS 

Class loads for the full-time student may range from 12 to 15 semester 
hours during a regular session of the academic year. The maximum load is 
15 semester hours. 

IN-SERVICE TEACHERS 

The maximum load for a fully employed in-service teacher must not exceed 
semester hours during any academic year. 

UNIVERSITY STAFF 

The maximum load for any fully employed member of the university faculty 
or staff will be six semester hours for the academic year. 

Concurrent Registration in Other Institutions 

A student registered in a degree program in this Graduate School may not 
enroll concurrently in another graduate school except upon permission, secured 
in advance, from the Dean of the Graduate School. 

Grading System 

Grades for graduate students are recorded as follows: A, excellent; B, 
average; C, below average; F, failure; S, work in progress (for courses in 
research); I, incomplete; W, withdrawal. 

1. In order to earn a degree, a student must have a cumulative average of 
"B," (a grade point average of 3.0 on a system in which 1 hour of A 
earns 4 grade points). 

2. A graduate student automatically goes on probation when his cumula- 
tive average falls below "B." 

3. A student may be dropped from the degree program if he has not re- 
moved himself from probation after two successive terms as a full-time 
student. 

4. A student may not repeat for credit a course in which he has earned a 
"C" or above. 

5. A student must repeat a required course in which he has earned an 
"F." A student may not repeat the course more than once. If a student 
fails a second time, he is dismissed from the degree program. 

6. All hours attempted in graduate courses and all grade points earned are 
included in the computation of the cumulative average of a graduate 
student. 

7. A student who stops attending a course but fails to withdraw officially 
may be assigned a grade of "F." 



13 



8. All grades of "I" must be removed during the student's next term of 
residence. 

9. A student may not count towards a degree program any course in which 
he has earned a grade of "F." 

Note: The North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction does not 
accept towards renewal of certification any course in which a student has 
received a grade of "D" or "F." 

Professional Education Requirements for Class A 
Teaching Certificate 

The Department of Public Instruction of North Carolina requires 18 semes- 
ter hours of credit in professional education courses for all applicants for 
Class A teaching certificates on the secondary level. These hours must include 
six credits in the sociological, historical, and philosophical foundations of 
American education; four credits in psychological foundations of education; 
two credits in curriculum, instructional procedures, materials, and methods; 
and six credits in student teaching. The applicant for a Class A teaching 
certificate on the intermediate elementary level must satisfy the requirements 
state above and must also have two additional credits in psychological founda- 
tions of education and four additional credits in curriculum, materials, and 
methods. 

In all graduate degree programs except those leading to a Master of Science 
in Chemistry or in Food and Nutrition, the student at A. and T. State Uni- 
versity must hold a Class A certificate before he can be admitted to candidacy. 
To provide for the student who enters graduate studies without the required 
credits in courses in education, the Graduate School offers the following pro- 
gram: Education 625, Education 500, (Principles and Curricula of Secondary 
Schools), Psychology 400. (Psychological Foundations of Education), Gui- 
dance 600, a three-semester hour course in methods of teaching, and six 
hours of student teaching. Education 500, the course in methods, and the 
student-teaching may be taken during the same semester. Education 500, 
Psy. 400, the methods course, and the student teaching offer undergraduate 
credit only. 

The program stated above is intended for and required of all students 
pursuing degree programs in agricultural, industrial, or secondary education 
or in administration and supervision or guidance who have taken no under- 
graduate courses in professional education. Students who have earned some 
but not enough undergraduate credits in education and students without "A" 
certificates who are seeking graduate degrees in elementary education should 
consult with the Chairman of the Department of Education or the Dean of 
the Graduate School to work out a program to meet certification requirements. 

While taking undergraduate courses in education and psychology to meet 
certification requirements, a student may enroll in graduate-level courses in 
his subject-matter area of concentration if he has completed the undergradu- 
ate requirements in that area. 

Subject-matter Requirements for Class A 
Teaching Certificate 

If a student has not completed sufficient undergraduate courses in a subject- 
matter field to hold a Class A certificate in that subject, he should consult 
with the chairman of the department offering that concentration. Together, 
they must work out a program to satisfy the undergraduate deficiencies by 
means of undergraduate courses or courses open to undergraduates and 
graduates.

REGULATIONS FOR A MASTER'S DEGREE 
Admission to Candidacy for a Degree 

Admission to graduate studies does not guarantee admission to candidacy 
for a degree. In order to be qualified as a candidate for a degree, a student 
must have a minimum overall average of 3.0 in at least nine semester hours 
of graduate work at A. and T., must have removed all deficiencies resulting 
from undergraduate preparation, and must have passed the Qualifying 
Essay. Some departments require additional qualifying examinations. 

The following is the procedure for securing admission to candidacy: 

1. The student secures application forms for admission to candidacy from 
the Graduate Office, fills them out, and returns them to that office. This 
step should be taken as soon as possible after the student has decided upon 
a degree program. 

2. The Graduate Office processes the application, notifies the student of 
the action, and informs him of the time when the Qualifying Essay will 
next be administered. 

3. The student may take the Qualifying Essay during his first term of 
residence in graduate studies. If a student fails the Qualifying Essay, he may 
take it a second time. After a second failure he must enroll in a prescribed 
English composition course (English 300 or 621) at this university and must 
earn a grade of "C" or above. 

4. The Graduate Office informs the student of any qualifying examinations 
required by the department in which he is concentrating his studies. 

5. After the student has completed at least nine semester hours of grad- 
uate study at the college, he becomes eligible for admission to candidacy. 

If, at that time, he has maintained an average of 3.0 in his graduate studies, 
has passed the Qualifying Essay and all departmental qualifying examina- 
tions, the Graduate School informs him that he has been admitted to can- 
didacy and assigns him to an adviser in his field of concentration. 

In order to be eligible for graduation during a term, a student must have 
been admitted to candidacy no less than fifteen days prior to the deadline for 
filing for graduation during that term.

The minimum credit requirements for a graduate degree are thirty semes- 
ter hours for students in thesis and non-thesis programs. It is expected that 
a student can complete a program by studying full-time for an academic year 
and one additional summer term or by studying full-time during four nine- 
week summer sessions. 

RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS 

A mimimum of three-fourths of the hours required for the degree must be 
earned in residence study at the university. 

TIME LIMITATION 

The graduate program must be completed within six successive calendar 
years. Programs remaining incomplete after this time interval are subject 
to cancellation, revision, or special examination for out-dated work. 

When the program of study is interrupted because the student has been 
drafted into the armed services, the time limit shall be extended for the 
length of time the student shall have been on active duty, if the candidate 
resumes graduate work no later than one year following his release from 
military service. 



15 



Course Levels 

At the university, six-digit numbers are used to designate all course offer- 
ings. The last three digits indicate the classification level of the course. 
Courses numbered 600 through 699 are open to seniors and to graduate stu- 
dents. Courses numbered 700 through 799 are open only to graduate stu- 
dents. At least fifty percent of the courses counted in the work towards a 
Master's degree must be those open only to graduate students; that is, 
numbered 700 through 799. 

Transfer of Credit 

A maximum of six semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred 
from another graduate institution if (1) the work is acceptable as credit 
toward a comparable degree at the institution from which transfer is sought, 
and (2) the courses to be transferred are approved by the Dean of the Grad- 
uate School. 

To request a transfer of credit, the student must complete an application 
in the Graduate School Office. It will be the applicant's responsibility to 
request from the appropriate institution (s) a statement certifying that the 
work is acceptable as credit toward a comparable degree. The transcript 
should then be sent to the Graduate School Office of A. and T. State Uni- 
versity. 

Final Comprehensive Examination 

At least 45 days before a candidate expects to complete all work for the 
graduate degree, he should file in the Graduate Office an application for a 
final examination. 

1. All graduate students are required to pass a written comprehensive 
examination in their area of specialty. 

2. Students pursuing a degree of M.S. in Education, subject-matter 
oriented, will take a comprehensive examination in two parts, subject- 
matter and professional education. The evaluation will be made by 
the faculties in the respective areas. 

3. If a student fails a comprehensive examination twice, he must petition 
for a third examination. The petition is reviewed by a committee from 
the student's major concentration. A student who fails a third time is 
dismissed from the degree program. 

4. Comprehensive examinations are to be scheduled by the departments, 
with the approval of the Graduate Office. A report of the student's per- 
formance must be submitted to the Graduate Office at least three 
weeks prior to Commencement. 

Options For Degree Program 

The student, in consultation with his adviser, selects the degree program to 
be followed. The adviser must notify the chairman of the department of the 
program plan which the candidate prefers to follow. 

THE THESIS OPTION 

In order for a student to pursue a thesis program, he must be recom- 
mended to the Dean of the Graduate School by his adviser and the chairman 
of the department in which he is concentrating his studies. The Graduate 
School must then approve the student as a candidate. The thesis program 
consists of thirty semester hours including the thesis. After receiving written 
approval to follow the thesis option, the candidate shall prepare and present 
the thesis proposal to the adviser. Upon the request of the adviser, the Dean 
of the Graduate School shall appoint a Thesis Proposal Committee and shall 
fix a time of meeting. Following acceptance of the proposal, the adviser must 
submit to the Dean of the Graduate School an approved copy of the proposal 



16 



in its final form. Individuals who have been granted the privilege of following 
the thesis option are expected to demonstrate research competencies and to 
prepare a scholarly account of resulting data. 

THE NON-THESIS OPTION 

The non-thesis plan is offered to the candidate who may benefit more from 
a broader range of studies than from the preparation of a thesis. The program 
of study must consist of a minimum of 30 credit hours of prescribed courses. 

Individuals who are following this plan must demonstrate their ability to 
conduct and to report the results of original research by preparing a paper as 
a part of the course Special Problems or Research or Seminar in the appro- 
priate area. 

Master's Thesis and Format 

The following are regulations for a Master's thesis and the format of the 
thesis: 

1. A student writing a thesis must register for the course, Thesis, prior to 
the semester in which he expects to take the final examination. 

2. Three typewritten copies of the completed thesis must be submitted to 
the Dean of the Graduate School, together with two copies of an abstract 
of the thesis. The abstract should be 400 to 500 words. Consult the Grad- 
uate School's calendar for deadline dates regarding submission of these 
manuscripts. 

3. Additional information concerning the format is available in the Grad- 
uate School Office. 

Application for Graduation 

A candidate for graduation must file an application for graduation at least 
30 days prior to the close of the session in which he expects to complete the 
requirements for the degree. A student secures the applications forms from 
his adviser, who must approve the application before it is sent to the Grad- 
uate School Office. Failure to meet the deadline may result in delay of 
graduation for the candidate. 

Graduate Record Examination 

The Graduate Record Examination is required of all students who desire to 
become candidates for degrees. Information concerning the time, place and 
cost of the examination may be obtained from the office of the Dean of the 
Graduate School. 

Administrative Policy Concerning Changes in Requirements 
for Students Enrolled in Degree Programs 

Generally, a student is permitted to graduate according to the requirements 
specified either in the catalogue current during the year of his first applica- 
tion for candidacy or in the catalogue current during the year of his applica- 
tion for graduation. If more than six years pass between the student's appli- 
cation for candidacy and his application for graduation, the university re- 
serves the right to require the student to satisfy the regulations in effect at 
the time of his application for graduation. In all instances, the Graduate 
School reserves the right to require students in programs in Agricultural 
Education, Education, or Industrial Education to satisfy the requirements 
specified by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction at the time 
of the Student's completion of the requirements for the Master of Science 
degree.
